CDBG Program

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program is a Federal grant program that provides funding for cities to address the causes and consequences of poverty principally through activities that benefit low- and moderate-income persons.  The program is one of the longest continuously run programs at the U.S Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).

CDBG funds can be used for activities that benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) individuals and neighborhoods, including awards to local organizations, low- or no-cost housing rehabilitation loans and public infrastructure improvements. HUD regulations and Federal law determine which activities are eligible for CDBG funding.  See HUD's CDBG rules and regulations

HUD defines low- and moderate-income as at or below 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI). These income guidelines are adjusted annually by HUD and are available here. For further information, please refer to the contact information below.
